Hah, I know exactly what you mean about the Civil War. . . I read through it largely 'after the fact', mainly because I was trying to figure out what the hell was going on in the first place. I appreciated one thing, and one thing only about it: both sides (Tony and Steve) did what they did because they believed in something. But I agree strongly that it felt very, VERY out of character for our Mr. Stark.
Still, there were elements of it that I liked, and it was interesting enough. Unfortunately, the whole event lasted far, FAR too long, and did too much damage to the state of the universe as a whole. Not to mention the Spider-man fiasco. . .
No holding back here, Geekery - I was going to originally, but then it hit me: if GR isn't holding back, why should I? Superman is going to weigh in at PL 15, with a HUGE point total - and that's where he belongs. Given that, so does Thor. Iron Man, same thing. Cap, I figure he's earned at LEAST as much experience and power as Batman has, so being a peak human with depth he belongs at the same over pointed PL 12 they put the Bat in.
Good point on the Unibeam - I may go back and add the second version, along with a few other logical extensions of things. One more rank of Device won't hurt things, and like I mentioned, I've got a LONG ways to go before I hit 285. I may even go so far as to stat Hulkbuster the way it's written; as a second stage, alternate form of sorts that layers over the device.
Let's finish out the big three with a bang. He's mighty. He's big, blond, and badass. And according to Wikipedia, he possesses, "a kiss that can overwhelm mortal women." The incomparable Odinson, the god of thunder, Asgard's mightiest warrior! Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you... The Mighty Thor"Give your orders and ultimatums to those who choose to obey, or are too cowardly to fight, not to me. Or learn again the difference between a God of Thunder-- and a mortal man in a metal suit." --Thor #3, 2008"Oh, yeah? Well my god has a hammer." --Nick Fury

WOW. The God of Thunder in all his glory, ladies and gents! Again, it owes a thing or two to other builds, most notably Elric's PL 14 Thunder god. I may go back and tweak a few of the power constructs later, but for the moment I think I like them.
Child of Gaia; Thor is the son of Odin Allfather and Gaia, the Earth goddess. As such, he has power over the earth in addition to his might as a thunder god. I've only seen him use it on one occasion, but since he ripped a canyon across a large chunk of Africa I felt it bore putting in the build. I also took the liberty of including space flight and my brief take on his fabled "God Blast" - which, of course, he rarely uses, but I had the points, so there it is.
Thor should also feel free to power stunt off that Uru array liberally. He is, after all, a god - and he's got more than enough Hero points to make him feel like one.
